Permit me to introduce myself, I am Lord Malcolm McKenzie, Duke of Selkirk and Master of Mckenzie Castle. Now whilest you rest, I shall tell you of the birth of Freedom and Ten Brave Lads and Lassies that gave their all for that precious word FREEDOM!

During or right ater the battle of Bannockbun King Robert Bruce decided that the Highland realms had to be protected from invasion. After long though he hid upon a plan of having a chain of castles built about 30 miles apart.

First he had to get the land so he negotiated with the various clan chiefs and told them if he could put a castle up it would protect them and the ports and cities from Vikings and English, and anyone else who dared invade Scotland.

Having procured the land he designed the co ordination and fuction of each castle. If one were attacked they would send help to the area. Now Castle McKenzie was the first to be built in the year 1317. It took two years, closer to three to complete. Castle Mckenzie stands hear the town of Oban but it protects the shipping town of Selkirk and other cities aound it.

It is manned by approximately 200 troops ,archers and knights. Castle McKenzie is the controlling castle of the defense chain, it also serves as a haven for the unfortunate and the maincontact with Ediburgh and King Robert the Bruce.
